WOC Middle Distance Qualification Results

Show Profile  HeadHoncho Posted: 7 August 2005, 7:24 AM  
Karl qualified 8th in heat A, 31-08, 3 min from winner. Struck the toughest heat, 2 seconds from 6th (!) and only a minute back to the cutoff at 15th. (Rob Walter 11th in 31-57)

Darren squeaked through in heat C, 15th in 34-01 - a bit lucky with an easier heat and a Brit who finished faster getting disqualified. Dave Shep just ahead of him in 14th, and a Finn in 16th missing out.

Looks like Jamie didn't have a good day, 22nd in Heat B 40-38. Julian Dent 14th 32-26.

Tania qualified well 6th in Heat A, 31-58. Tracey Bluett 13th.

Rebecca missed out by a couple of minutes in Heat B, 37-08 and 18th (Tash Key 13th 34-56)

Claire was 20th in Heat B, 39-01 and 4 minutes off qualifying (Hanny Allston 11th)

So 3 out of 6 through to the finals. Great effort.

Should also be noted that Karl's finish split reputation extends to world champs = fastest across all 3 heats (and it was a very evil finish leg as well)

Just goes to show the quality of communication round here some time that you guys on the other side of the ocean have found the online photo library well before I have!
